Ben Folds Five

Ben Folds Five Autumn de Wilde
January 16, 2013 - The Ben Folds Five join host David Dye in the studio. The Ben Folds Five were unlike any other rock band when they came on to the scene in the mid 90s. Led by pianist Ben Folds, the trio stood out from the bevy of popular guitar groups with their unique configuration and witty writing.
Their second album 1997’s Whatever and Ever Amen was a breakthrough hit, but after the band’s third disc, the three musicians went their separate ways. A decade later they have come together once again and put out a new album The Sound of the Life of the Mind. They talk about why they decided to pursue solo interests and what made them decide to record as a group again. And John Fullbright. The Oklahoma native shares why religion inspired some of the songs on his debut From the Ground Up.
